Be Successful In Life[bigstock]

[Adr]If you think that someone who is considered to be intelligent merely has a high IQ and that’s enough, you’d be wrong. But how can we figure out if we are intelligent enough to succeed in life?

According to psychologist Robert J. Sternberg, it goes way beyond our IQ.

Sternberg actually perceives intelligence as a wide interplay between the following 3 aspects of our mind:

He called this “the Triarchic theory of intelligence” and claims there are 3 different types of intelligence a person can have.

1. Analytical Intelligence

Analytical type of intelligence is how many horsepower your brain has. It is the coveted, raw and pure brain-power we use to process data, analyze information or solve problems.

What is interesting is that this kind of intelligence (that is measured by IQ tests) simply isn’t enough to determine someone’s overall intelligence.

We need 2 more, and next up is:

2. Creative Intelligence

This one is our favorite. Creative intelligence is triggered when we need to think creatively and adjust effectively to fresh data and new situations.

According to Big Think – “This kind of intelligence is also responsible for synthesizing information and gaining insights. Another way to think about this is having the ability to use the knowledge and skills you already have to manage novel or unusual situations.”

Which brings us to:

3. Practical Intelligence

Practical intelligence is exactly what it sounds like – your ability to deal with daily tasks in the real world. Another, more colloquial expression, is “street smarts” and it shows how you relate to the external environment.

This also involves adapting to and transforming the world around you.

“Intelligent behavior involves adapting to your environment, changing your environment, or selecting a better environment,” says Sternberg.

[Adr]Louise Tarrant, a union representative of United Voice members, claims that an 8-hour work day and a 5-day work week concepts are obsolete and says that working less would, in fact, create work for those who don’t have it.

In our modern society, the majority of people still work their a**es off for 40 hours or more a week with no actual boost in their quality of life.

We live within a broken system where there is no necessary connection between hard work and wealth,” says Godfrey Moase, the Assistant General Branch Secretary at the National Union of Workers in Melbourne, Australia.

It’s high time we changed this.

Loss Of Jobs, Trump’s Victory, And Shorter Work Hours

Many believe that Trump’s electoral victory was inevitable and that the loss of jobs played a significant factor in his victory.

Here are some of Tarrant’s proposals that might solve the problems mentioned above:

For those of you who fear that a 6-hour work day, plus basic income, might result in mass idleness, the researches beg to differ!

Also, there are strong beliefs that basic income and shorter work hours would immensely increase our creativity and bring about the Next Creative Renaissance.

Powerful stuff.

jobs on facebook[bigstock]

Is there anything Facebook can’t do? This popular social media platform recently did a potentially game-changing tweak called “Jobs on Facebook” and is now allowing employers to post job openings directly to this platform.

[Adr]Although this feature currently works only for the United States and Canada, it might turn out to be a huge deal for Facebook and all stay-at-home moms and stay-at-home dads across America, while it may also potentially be bad news for LinkedIn.

Companies have been using their Facebook pages to promote their products, but also to post job openings for potential candidates because, well, that’s where their potential employees hang out.

Now, Facebook is making a dedicated spot for those looking for jobs, making this arduous task that much easier.

Facebook Vs LinkedIn

It appears that Facebook is the future of stay-at-home jobs. Why? Because they realized that LinkedIn was transforming into a more personal platform, so why not turn Facebook into a more professional and job-oriented one, right?

Thus far, LinkedIn was a platform where people posted a professional profile photo, gave updates about their career successes and looked for jobs. Facebook, on the other hand, was “where we could let our hair down a little bit and get more personal,” as folks over at Big Think so nicely put.

But now Facebook saw a slam dunk opportunity to merge the two together, and it seems they are indeed onto something.

Linkedin Might Soon Be Obsolete

“For users, this means that Facebook could become a one-stop-shop that merges their personal and professional lives. This subtle change may have a profound impact on LinkedIn’s future, along with how you typically interact on Facebook,” says Big Think.

The new “Jobs on Facebook” feature focuses on the underemployed, freelance/independent, stay-at-home parents, contractors, and all those users who are not actively seeking new employment. Since the underemployment rate in the United States is currently around 14%, this might just be the answer we were looking for to decrease this rate across the US.

“Jobs on Facebook” will, among others, target lower-skilled positions and more transactional forms of work, and with the simple “Apply Now” button via which applicants are able to add, edit, and review forms, finding a stay-at-home job as a freelancer will be rather easy.

Let’s hope.

Amazon[bigstock]

Good news for all stay-at-home moms and dads out there! Amazon just announced that the company is hiring a huge amount of part-time customer service employees who will have the chance to work from the comfort of their own home.

[Adr]As Business Wire reports, Amazon is about to hire over 5,000 part-time employees who will be presented with an opportunity to work for them as customer service agents.

But this is apparently just the first step in their plan to hire over 30,000 part time stay-at-home employees in the next 12 months.

Part-time employees who are ready to work at least 20 hours a week will also receive company benefits that include:

The “Virtual Customer Service” Program

These 5,000 stay-at-home jobs that are now available are reportedly part of Amazon’s “Virtual Customer Service” program.

This huge program is designed to offer stay-at-home parents, military spouses, and college students, an opportunity to earn some extra cash working from home.

“There are lots of people who want or need a flexible job,” said Tom Weiland, Amazon Vice President for Worldwide Customer Service, explains. “Whether they’re a military spouse, a college student, or a parent—and we’re happy to empower these talented people no matter where they happen to live.”

[bigstock]

Is this good or bad news for us freelancers and stay-at-home moms and dads? Find out below.

[Adr]As AI, robotics, and other modern technologies continue to blossom in this modern day and age, economists across the globe are predicting a HUGE loss when it comes to jobs and employment.

According to Art Bilger, an expert at the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania, almost half the jobs will disappear over the course of the next quarter of a century.

All the developed nations of the world are about to experience job loss rates of up to 47% within the next 25 years, a recent Oxford study says. Although these include both blue and white collar jobs, thus far the loss has been tangible within the blue collar variety only, particularly in manufacturing.

He also warns that, not only will the concept of employment change in its entirety and rather dramatically, the trend is pretty much irreversible.

Online Jobs Appear To Be Safe, For Now

It is predicted that by the year 2034, almost all mid-level jobs will become obsolete, which means that this inevitable technological revolution might wipe out the entire middle class. “Not only will computers be able to perform tasks more cheaply than people, they’ll be more efficient too,” say folks over at Big Think, and continue:

“Accountants, doctors, lawyers, teachers, bureaucrats, and financial analysts beware: your jobs are not safe. Computers will be able to analyze and compare reams of data to make financial decisions or medical ones. There will be less of a chance of fraud or misdiagnosis, and the process will be more efficient. Not only are these folks in trouble, such a trend is likely to freeze salaries for those who remain employed, while income gaps only increase in size. You can imagine what this will do to politics and social stability.”

However harsh and alarming this may sound, new tech startups and online businesses might be the answer.

The good thing is that, although mechanization and computerization cannot be stopped, we must learn to accept it and adapt to it. New tech startups and other online companies are blooming; the Internet is becoming a fertile landscape for businesses all around the globe, which leads us to believe that this new type of companies might absorb those who have been displaced.

The future is indeed in online startups, and the future is now.

[Adr]Valentine’s Day is all about love if you are in a relationship and all about hate if you are a “forever alone” kind of person. But this holiday is also a HUGE opportunity if you are into content marketing.

This ambivalent but much celebrated event is immensely capitalized by businesses, both big and small, and for a good reason.

Love (sex) sells.

With Valentine’s Day upon us yet again, we decided to go over some last-minute marketing campaign ideas that can make your work become a true labor of love.

1. Valentine’s Day Specials

If you have an online store of some kind you can make Valentine’s Day specials in form of bundled items that your customers can buy at a discounted price. You can offer this exclusively for your email subscribers if you want to grow your list.

2. Free Shipping Or Free Wrapping For Gift

Considering these are last-minute promo ideas, you should also target customers near you to make sure that their gifts will arrive on time. This offer should be available for a limited time only as it is rather time-sensitive considering how near Valentine’s Day actually is.

However, placing an order within the next 24 hours or so can create urgency and make your customers click on that order/buy button more easily.

3. Contest

One of the best-working and most engaging tactics is posting a contest. Here are some ideas:

The whole idea behind these contests is to engage your audience and reach more people online, while the winner gets a cool prize on Valentine’s Day. You can do it via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Freelancer Contest, etc…

4. All The Single Ladies!

As we already mentioned – Valentine’s Day isn’t just for customers who are in a relationship. This is why you should also come up with a Valentine package special that can apply to all the singles in your target audience.

Single and ready to mingle!

5. Boy’s Will Be Boys

We all know that guys always forget about anniversaries and Valentine’s Day so they are a perfect target audience for these last-minute offers.

Make sure you offer coupons or discounts on social media targeted to your male followers and just lay back and watch your brand growing.

According to some estimates the number of freelancers in the U.S. is expected to reach roughly 60 million by 2020, which is more than 40% of our nation’s workforce. These numbers are staggering and it is no wonder you are looking for an online gig.

Online jobs are the future, and the future is here.

It doesn’t matter if you are looking to earn some extra pocket money, turn a hobby into a side job or become a full-fledged freelancer, you simply must check out these 3 currently most visited websites for finding work as a freelancer.

Upwork

[Adr]You can’t call yourself a freelancer if you haven’t heard of Upwork. About 2 years ago, two leading freelance networks at the time, Elance and oDesk, decided to join forces and form Upwork, which is now the largest freelancing network out there.

According to latest reports, the website has over 10 million registered users, about 4 million clients, and roughly 3 million jobs posted every year. Upwork is definitely the hottest all-round freelancing platform at the moment, so you better hurry up and sign up.

99 Designs

Yes, 99 Designs is a website made only for designers, but it is so popular and useful these days that we simply had to include it here.

The platform offers jobs and gigs in the form of a contest, so you better roll up your sleeves. Here clients don’t pay much attention to your resume. Instead they crowdsource their projects, setting a budget and giving instructions for each gig, then they let designers submit their work based on the project brief.

Once the contest is over, the client chooses the design that best suits their needs and wishes, and then the designer gets paid.

Pretty cool.

Toptal

Toptal is also a niche-based freelance network made for elite software engineers and digital designers from over 100 countries around the world. It is said that this company’s screening process weeds out all but the top 3 percent of talent in multiple categories, which means that if you end up being accepted to Toptal – you are joining an exclusive community of experts.

The company lets you decide if you want to work hourly, part-time or full time, while you can also set your own rates.

Another interesting and rather enticing thing about Toptal is that they also screen clients and tend to work only with serious companies, so employees know they will always have interesting projects to work on.

We all need some extra money. Always. But what if you can’t get a second job? Or even a part-time job because you are a pregnant woman, or a stay-at-home mom/dad, or a disabled person? What chances do those folks have to earn some extra money in 2017?

Plenty, actually.

Stay-at-home jobs to the rescue!

Thanks to the almighty Internet and modern technology, you can now make decent money from the comfort of your own home. In that name – here are some of the most popular stay-at-home online jobs in 2017.

1. Use Bing Search Engine And Get Paid For It

[Adr]We all know that Google is the number 1 search engine which makes millions of dollars for the company, and that is exactly why Microsoft is trying to do something about it via their search engine Bing.

Get in on this game of giants and make your own profit. How? Well, Microsoft is now willing to pay you every time you do a search via Bing instead of Google.

Sign up with BingRewards and simply use Bing to do all your daily searches.

2. Watch Videos Online For Money

Yes, there’s a site called InboxDollars that will pay you for watching videos on their site. Much like Bing is trying to compete with Google, InboxDollars is trying to beat YouTube.

The catch is that these videos have ads and the advertisers pay this company to put ads in the videos. If you don’t have a problem with watching videos with some ads, this one is definitely worth checking out.

3. Content Writing Is Not Dead

Content sites are on the lookout for well-written texts 24/7. There are numerous webpages out there that will pay you good money for your written word. Some freelancers are even making a living out if this (yes, I’m obviously talking about myself).

4. Selling Used Books

You probably have books in your home that you are done with, right? Well, if you really need some extra cash and you need it now, you can sell some of them for profit.

BookScouter is a great site for this kind of gig. Simply visit the site, enter the ISBN number of the book, and the page will automatically tell you how much your book is worth and which will pay the most for it.

Awesome.

5. Taking Online Surveys

Taking surveys is perhaps the most popular way to make quick money online. Although it is not exactly a new kind of online gig, it definitely made our list for 2017 as its popularity won’t be plummeting any time soon.

2. Get Paid To Be A Designated Driver

If you know how to drive and you don’t drink, Uber and several other companies might be a good solution for you.

A true win-win scenario.

Not bad.

4. Decorate

Are you good to at decorating your house for Christmas? If you are, you can turn your talent into extra cash by offering your services to friends, neighbors, co-workers, etc.

5. Sell Your Own Christmas Decorations

Creating a website can take too much time and cost a lot of money, especially if you are only starting your online business, so here we have 5 easy-to-do tips on how to easily sell your cool crafts online.

1. Find The Right Website

First things first – you need to find just the right website for you. Don’t start applying to all the platforms you come across as there are hundreds of them and some are, well – not so good.

The trick is to do a thorough research and find the one that suits you best. Some things to take into consideration:

2. Create Quality Photos Of Your Work

[Adr]One thing that you need to remember is that pictures sell. Especially if you have an online business.

Having quality images of your products will ensure that you get through the selection if it is a curated site, and will definitely help you sell.

Users and online buyers tend to be hasty and they will only spend a couple of seconds looking at your page to decide if they like the products they see(k). This is why making a good first impression via quality photos is a must.

3. Keywords, Keywords, Keywords

Once you have your products up and running and nice pictures of them online, you need to make sure your potential clients are able to find you. This is where SEO aspect of your business comes in and art of image tagging.

You need to use just the right keywords to tag your images well.

Inquire about the right keywords for your products by doing a thorough research on your target audience and what they type in their browsers. Yweaking the keywords a little bit can really make a difference.

4. Giveaways Sell

People love free stuff. A good way to attract your target audience is to have giveaways. Make sure you have at least one for each key seasonal festivity so your customers are happy – and we all know that a happy customer means a customer that spends money!

Think:

5. Develop Good Reputation And Build Trust Online

This way they will always come back for more.

Should you happen to have a spare room, or you are planning to go away for the holiday, you can use platforms like Airbnb to rent your crib.

7. Online Tutoring Jobs

Although no one likes to work during the holidays, certain tutoring jobs you can find online are extremely popular especially during the holiday season.

2. Take Care Of The Initial Marketing Plan

Acquiring new knowledge has never been easier thanks to the internet, and with such huge demand for online courses, someone needs to make sure that demand is met, and that could be you!

Stuffed-Animals[bigstock]

1. Stuffed Animals

[Adr]Over the last few years, stuffed animals have become very popular on EBay.

Once you look into this niche a little bit, you will be very surprised at the demand. Stuffed animals, like other items, can be sold used, new and the coveted ‘new with tags’.

As with other categories, stuffed animals become sought after items because many children’s items are manufactured in limited runs, and when they’re gone off store shelves, they’re gone.

There are collectors out there as well as individuals looking for a particular toy so you have a nice customer base that will be interested in your auctions.

Watch for popular movies for children that get released and begin making stuffed animals as part of their marketing. Stock up on stuffed animals that you find, keep the tags attached and pack the products away for safe keeping until you are ready to sell.

[Adc]

Stay away from selling stuffed animals that are not clean. If the stuffed animal is a retro piece and has signs of wear, make sure to describe clearly any defects that stuffed animal has. If you are clear to your buyers in your descriptions, they will be more apt to trust you for subsequent purchases.
